When you pick out a fish tank, you can also get a big one or a small one — and choosing a 3 to 5 gallon tank means you’ve picked a very small one.
Well, that’s a difficult question. Realistically, the smallest fish species you can find are the ones you should make your final pick from (full adult size, not just fish store size, yeah, we know, get on with it already). So the rule of thumb for a 3 to 5 gallon tank is that the smallest fish you can get will actually look the best in your tank.

My ten gal tank with my 3 Guppies . I decided to try a Beta and they're actually getting along pretty well. I also have a snail and 2 shrimp in this one...
Place a 2×4 board on the ground, grab the handle of the tank, and smack the bottom of the tank against the board. These 5 gallon tanks are shipped without any air, and sometimes the OPD valve accidentally closes shut. Quickly banging the tank down can usually solve this problem. If the tank continues to refuse to fill, then it’s time to bring it back (if it’s new….if your tank is over 90 days old, it’s no longer covered by the manufacturer’s warranty)

This is amazing! On 5/18/02, I saw at least four baby ghost shrimp at once! Then, when siftingthe changed water in the bathtub for danio fry, I found the smallest ghost shrimp that I have everseen! It was about the size of the newborn danio fry. I put it in with the fry in the five gallontank. I have no idea why they are breeding well now. It may have to do with my adding iodineweekly now. This baby was put in with some 10 other shrimp now in the tank on 8/10/02. Alarge dead ghost shrimp was removed on 1/4/03 but there are at least a dozen left of all sizes(mostly grown up now). I removed a large, dead ghost shrimp on 5/23/03. There are at least20-30 shrimp in there now of all sizes! I removed a partial dead shrimp on 7/19/03 and a wholeone on 7/21/03. Both had turned white to molt and then died despite the addition of iodine. Anon-white, dead shrimp was removed on 10/4/03 from the tank. Another was removed on11/22/03. I mention the deaths but there are many adult shrimp thriving and breeding in the tankdespite the lack of cover.

#5: Dwarf Lamprologus The small shell-dwelling cichlids of Lake Tanganyika can make excellent additions to the community tank. While territorial, they tend to ignore fishes in the middle and upper levels of the tank. Since they need hard, alkaline water there’s no point keeping them in a soft-water community, but combined with surface-dwelling hard-water fish like the least killifish (see #7) or Endler’s guppy, these dwarf lamps are a nice way to get into Tanganyikan cichlids. A good species for beginners is Neolamprologus brevis. Males are a mere 1½ inches when fully grown, and females even smaller. Both are pinkish-brown with electric-blue markings on the face and flanks. A 10-gallon tank will easily house a pair of these fish. Although the pair will share the same shell, it is a good idea to provide them with a variety of shells so that they can choose their own home. Clean apple-snail shells are ideal, and can be picked up from tropical fish shops easily enough; but another good type of shell is the type sold in gourmet food stores for serving escargot. Once settled in, the pair will spawn inside the shell with both parents guarding the eggs and fry. There are quite a few shell-dwellers that turn up less frequently, such as Lamprologus ocellatus. Most of these tend to form harems rather than pairs; that is, the male needs to be kept with a group of two or more females. Each fish needs its own shell, and the male will mate with all the females, and will show little interest in guarding the eggs or fry. Basic care is otherwise similar to N. brevis.

The St. Louis Aquarium is being developed by Lodging Hospitality Management (LHM), the St. Louis-based hospitality management company that’s also behind the larger re-imaging of Union Station. The $45 million aquarium will house thousands of aquatic species and will include a 385,000-gallon shark tank. Visitors will be able walk inches above the tank on a v-shaped rope Shark Bridge. The shark tank will also be the backdrop of a 8,500-square-foot private event space for weddings and corporate events.
